Wastewater Aeration Membranes: Smurfit-Stone Container Case Study
The Smurfit-Stone Container mill owns and operates a wastewater treatment plant onsite and process about 4 million gallons of water per day. This case study, written by Jeremy Hoeh, describes the mill's replacement of ceramic aerator disks with rubber membrane disks. The rubber disks operate more efficiently and maintain a higher dissolved oxygen rate. The project has saved the mill money, and benefited the environment by reducing energy usage and producing a cleaner effluent.
